Well, here I am. I got to run my first train when I was just a kid. I used to hang out at the train yard behind Sears in South Seattle. I got to know one of the engineers, he let me ride in one of the engines. Finally, he let me put a train together and run it to Black Diamond. As got older I developed an interest in flying and flight simulators. In the Air Force, I worked on the F-15 and got some time in the F-15 flight simulator, and the F-4 sim. I've spent many hours flying Microsoft Flight Sim; and hours and hours in Falcon F-16. I flew in a Sky Warriors battle. I recently took up train simulation (okay a few years ago). I started with Microsoft Train Simulator. Bought a couple of others, Trainz and just acquired Train Sim World. I'm a retired DJ, System Engineer, truck driver and I'm currently a dispatcher for a trucking company. My life has not been boring. -JJ, aka Nomad78100.
